NASCAR driver kicks off GQ Elementary Driven to Read
GRANITE QUARRY — NASCAR Camping World Series driver Dusty Davis stopped by Granite Quarry Elementary recently to kick off the school’s Driven to Read campaign.
Davis, the national spokesman for the incentive-based program, told students that reading is essential no matter what they want to be.
“Growing up, my mom would always talk about how important reading was and I was like ‘c’mon Mom, I’m going to be a race car driver, I don’t need to read,’” he said. “But I learned quickly that reading is very important.”
Principal Vicki Booker said she’s excited to begin the program at Granite Quarry.
“We are really, really pushing reading,” she said. “We want kids to read and we want them to understand what they’re reading.”
